Getting There & Departing
By Car -- The road to Cobá begins in Tulum and continues for 65km (40 miles). Watch out for topes (speed bumps) and potholes. The road has been widened and repaved and should be in good condition. Close to the village of Cobá, you will come to a triangle; be sure to follow the road to Cobá and not Nuevo Xcan or Valladolid. The entrance to the ruins is a short distance down the road past some small restaurants and the large lake.
By Bus -- Several buses a day leave Tulum and Playa del Carmen for Cobá. Several companies offer bus tours.
